Vibe 101 lets dance music lovers know where to go

Dance and r'n'b music lovers now have somewhere new to go to hear their favourite tracks and new mix releases, thanks to the launch of Vibe 101 to South Wales and The West of England on 6th January.

According to the new station "Previous offerings have strayed from the promise to serve the listener resulting in 'another commercial pop offering'. vibe 101 will use its own programming strategy to serve the growing lifestyle beat music scene."

A new line-up of talented and youthful presenters will host a large number of new shows playing house, drum and bass, trance, soul, electronica and funky house as well as commercial dance and r'n'b hits.

Weekends are set to deliver more diversity with DJ's Paul Oakenfold and Roger Sanchez guesting alongside award-winning US House show "The Touch with Deli G" and DJ Gerard Cantwell, presenting a new drum and bass show - Drive By.

Gerard said: "Drum and Bass has been ignored by commercial radio for too many years and I am fired up by vibe 101 giving me this opportunity to bring it to their audience".

Sacha Brooks will host Urban vibe, specializing in Urban music from around the world and vibe nation will interact with the clubbers across their weekend and will include the club countdown.

Jason Staveley, Programme Director of vibe 101 said, "We are very excited about the station that we have put together and really happy with early feedback."

vibe 101 is broadcasting now on 101FM and additionally on 97.2FM in the Bristol area.
